Well thanks for the replies, I will try and get my hands on some 1500 coils and Harley pipes and start there.

Has anyone used the Accel coils?

Running down the Valkyre is just a fun idea. ive got fast bikes like the SV1000 and the KZ1000. I don't need a hotrod out of this bike, just wanted a little more juice.

As far out-riding the old man, fat chance. He is an accomplished IBA rider and has run the Hoka Hey on his Harley. I am active duty and have to take all the MSF courses and can drag the pegs at not much more than idle. Im not trying to brag here and I mean no disrespect but I do "own" my bikes and "take full responsibility". Im also a mentor for inexperienced riders. please understand we don't race around being irresponsible, I just want a bit more juice out of the bike. thank you

1985 GL1200, all stock, left out in the weather for years, but 14,800 miles! came with all the factory goodies.

1985 GL1200LTD, 1983 GL650i (bobber), 2003 Suzuki SV1000N (Fighter), 1982? Honda CM400 (a friends botched attempt on a Café), and a 1982 Kawasaki KZ100
